Fundraiser for Tina Myres planned for Sept. 6

MARK — A fundraiser for Tina Myres will be from 1 to 10 p.m. Saturday, at the Clover Club, 105 E. Hennepin St. in Mark.

Myres, the married mother of two children, Alex, 8, and Lisa, 6, lives in rural Hennepin. She was recently diagnosed with Stage IV Sarcoma and has undergone multiple surgeries and treatments in a very short time.

Myres is a registered nurse who work at both St. Margaret’s Hospital in Spring Valley and Perry Memorial Hospital in Princeton. Due to the nature of her illness and treatments, she has been unable to return to work and will not be able to return for the foreseeable future due to the necessary ongoing treatments and possible surgeries she will receive.

Tickets for the event are $20 for adults and $10 for ages 3-12. Tickets include food, water, soda, draft beer, and kids games and activities (from 1 to 6 p.m.). The event will also include a silent auction, raffles, live music and DJ, and a cash bar.

For tickets and T-shirts, call 815-883-1013. For detailed information visit “Knock Out Sarcoma Benefit for Tina Myres” on Facebook. Direct donations can be made to the “Tina Myres Benefit Fund” at Heartland Bank in Princeton.
